SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will take part in a moderated discussion at the University of Notre Dame in September.

The Rev. John Jenkins, the university president, announced Wednesday that Sotomayor will discuss a wide range of issues with NBC News correspondent Anne Thompson and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Ann Claire Williams on Sept. 2.
